One More Reason to Love Coffee
We’re back to bring you the latest news in coffee research. You’ve seen how study after study has shown the myriad of benefits of drinking coffee on a daily basis. Well, new research conducted at National Cancer Institute in Rockville, Maryland has brought to light yet another, even more astonishing effect of coffee consumption—lowering the risk of death. Yes—you read that right. For this 10-year study, researchers utilized data from a previous study on 90,317 adults, who had no cancer or history of cardiovascular disease. These subjects were followed from 1998 through 2009, and they recorded their coffee intake, along with other dietary details. By 2009, approximately 8,700 of those test subjects had died. Based on the habits of those studied, the researchers found that coffee drinkers were less likely to have died during the study than those who didn’t drink coffee. In fact, the risk of death was lowest for those who drank four to five cups of coffee per day. Even those who drank decaffeinated coffee faired better. In addition, those who consumed two to three cups of coffee per day had about an 18 percent lower risk of death compared to those who reported drinking no coffee at all. The researchers also found that coffee drinkers had a reduced risk of death from heart disease, chronic respiratory diseases, diabetes, pneumonia, influenza, and even suicide. That being said, coffee is not a cure-all by any means. These results do not prove that coffee extends life. Rather, a moderate amount of coffee consumption can be incorporated into a healthy, balanced lifestyle. So, you don’t need to feel guilty about indulging in a cup or two of freshly brewed coffee every day, as long as you also practice healthy habits, such as exercising and maintaining a balanced diet.
